Abstract

While Alexander Campbell has an optimistic view of history and divine providence, he also addresses the reality of evil within creation. He primarily speaks of evil as a moral problem arising from the fall. While his "skeptical theism" makes him reluctant to explain any single occurrence of evil, Campbell does not discuss evil as an abstract problem, but rather develops his theodicy out of his understanding of the person and work of Christ and his eschatology.
